Behind the (Baby) Design: Geo Adventure
The adventure is just beginning when you add a baby to the family! The Geo Adventure print in our new, online-only Baby by Thirty-One line has a fresh, gender-neutral design that’s ready to follow wherever parenthood takes you.
Geo Adventure has great colors while remaining on-trend and fun, says Michelle Holden, a senior designer at Thirty-One. “This is one of my favorite prints!”
Thirty-One strived to design prints for its baby line that are playful but didn't feel “too baby,” she explains. Geo Adventure fits the bill for babies of both genders, as well as for expecting mothers who don't know if they will be welcoming a baby boy or baby girl.
“I think that this print is great for gifting or to use as a vessel to gift all the little necessities a new mom might need, especially if the gender will be a surprise!” Michelle says.
The story behind Geo Adventure
Our designers have been seeing more and more triangles popping up across fashion, from runway to nursery. While triangles are a simple geometric form, the Geo Adventure design is playful thanks to the colors and drawn look, Michelle says.
“We’ve been wanting to get a triangle into the line, and this was the perfect opportunity,” she says.
Thirty-One designers worked not only to get the scale right, but also to make sure the nuance of the print – the scribbly, organic line work – was visible. Its blend soft grey, yellow, mint and orange tones fit right into the millennial mom’s style while maintaining a classic look for staying power as baby grows.
What to wear & prints to pair
The same colors that make Geo Adventure so gender neutral make it easy to pair with other patterns. Choose one of the convenient City Park Diaper Bags, and tuck in a Super Swap-It Pocket and Cool Clip Thermal Pouch in Geo Adventure to add a bit of color and sass. All combined, the look lets mom have a little fashionable fun, no matter how little sleep she got the night before!
When personalizing Geo Adventure, choose a deep teal or orange thread to make text like baby’s name or family last name pop – or pick charcoal, bright yellow, white or true turquoise for a blended look. A kid-friendly font like Blackboard or Fun Dots makes the text especially fun!
Geo Adventure and the other designs in Baby by Thirty-One are also fun to personalize with adorable Icon-Its, like Footprints or a Hot Air Balloon. Monograms, such as a Floral Letter or Blackboard Initial, also can make the item truly baby's own.
When creating a baby solution set to use or gift, the Swirls and Whirls and Tiny Tiles prints both work especially well with Geo Adventure, Michelle says. Choosing a solid diaper bag? Geo Adventure is a great gender-neutral print to select for any accessory.
